Creating or editing ID vault policy settings documents manually

You use policy settings to assign IDs to an ID vault and to specify a few other optional ID vault settings. You can specify policy settings using the ID Vaults -> Create or ID Vaults -> Manage tools, or you can create or edit these policy settings manually as described in this topic.

About this task
